An ACL, or Access Control List are responsible for containing lists of who has access to a folder structure or file. To fix the error 1336, open a command prompt as administrator, navigate to the directory with the invalid ACL (using the cd command) and run this command: icacls * /T /Q /C /RESET If you still get error 1336, take ownership of the file or directory first, by using the takeown /R /F * command. You should then be able to read and write to the directory structure / file without getting the ERROR_INVALID_ACL error. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
